Re: Converter Plug

The back of your included "cable" (EVSE) should be labeled with acceptable input voltages. The EVSE that came with my i3 is 110 only. I purchase an aftermarket EVSE called a Duosida that accepts either 110 or 220. The Diosida is my everyday EVSE, and the voltage sensing is automatic. But it requires...

Re: Bought an i3, thoughts after a few months

Congrats! I recall your handle and you posting some questions pre-purchase. I'll just say, regarding the turn signals, I'm in general agreement with you. Now I own two cars with disagreeable turn signal operations --the i3, and the Ford Flex. However, I managed to make the i3 turn signals tolerable ...

Re: How'd My i3 Know The Tire Was Flat?

But that also gets into my final question, why the long recalibration period? Maybe, one activated, the sensors only transmit an update every few minutes, and the car waits to receive a series of transmissions before validating / displaying the results? That's unlike others I've driven that seem to ...

Re: How'd My i3 Know The Tire Was Flat?

My understanding of TPMS transmitters is they are activated by centrifugal force, so they only switch "on" when the car is in motion. That's why the timing isn't lining up for me.

How'd My i3 Know The Tire Was Flat?

I left work last night, unplugged, strapped in, started up and #BONG# Low Tire Pressure indication pops up immediately. Sure enough, right rear tire was dead flat. So question #1 is how did the system know this? Typically these systems require the wheel be rotating for them to function. I didn't hav...

Re: Someone towed my BMW i3, it wasn't towed on a flatbed, EDME module failed

I agree with MKH but I'm curious -- if your warranty just expired, but BMW is telling you that there were "hidden" error messages present in January (presumably the warranty was in effect at that point?) then why aren't they covering the repair. If BMW can unequivocally state that the January error ...

Re: Replaced my 12v battery, now showing "drive-train" fault detected

Is there a way to know the health of the 12v battery with bimmerlink or entering the car's dash hidden menu? You must mean a way to see the the same data the system generates as it monitors the 12v battery's health over its lifespan, so as to continually adjust the charging parameters to optimize i...
